Policies & Procedures



Cowley College is committed to providing an excellent safe and learning environment for all students in and outside the classrooms. We believe in fostering a campus climate that promotes physical and mental well-being as well as a safe and orderly campus environment. Students who compromise the student code of conduct are subject to disciplinary action by the college.

Cowley College students are expected to conduct themselves as responsible individuals at all times while on campus and off campus when on a college approved activity in accordance with the Standards of Student Conduct. Acts of incivility or misconduct which interferes with or detracts from the learning-centered environment are not permissible. A charge of misconduct may be made against a student for violating provisions of published College regulations and policies.  In circumstances where a student is charged with misconduct, they will be processed in accordance with procedures set forth in the Standards of Student Conduct and reflected in the Student Handbook. The student so affected by a student code of conduct violation and disciplinary action shall have the right of appeal through the academic affairs office via policy 405.

The administrator responsible for ensuring student rights and freedoms is the Executive Director of Student Affairs. Both the Vice President of Academic Affairs and the Executive Director of Student Affairs are responsible for student conduct, responsibilities and due process.

Policy 403 will be implemented in process through AP 403.
